Is substance abuse a problem or a crisis?
A panel of experts in the fields of law enforcement, medical and youth development are teaming up to provide an eye-opening presentation on substance abuse, the latest trends, what to look for when misuse or abuse is suspected, and where to turn for help. The town hall-style presentation will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 9, from 6 to 7 p.m., in the Crossing Rivers Health (CRH) George Family Education Center.
“Our goal is to be part of the solution and not the problem,” said Heidi Kirschbaum, emergency room coordinator at CRH.
The public is invited to attend and hear local professionals address problems in area communities regarding use and abuse of alcohol, heroin, meth, opioids (prescription drugs), etc.
